Critic Reviews of "The Holy Mountain"Time OutApril 21, 2007
Not even Buñuel with a brainful of Woodstock's bad brown acid could have made something this gloriously screwy.New York TimesApril 18, 2007
Alejandro Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain is a dazzling, rambling, often incoherent satire on consumerism, militarism and exploitation.Salon.comApril 11, 2007
This is an extraordinary visual concoction, loaded with stunning primary colors, anti-religious caricatures drawn from Diego Rivera and a succession of dreamlike, grotesque vistas worthy of Dalí at his most deranged.Los Angeles TimesMarch 16, 2007
Jodorowsky loves to confront the viewer with endless brutality and grotesque decadence and degradation, but here he expresses it with a rich, densely visual imagination.Toronto StarFebruary 02, 2007
Neither for the faint of heart or the linear of thinker, The Holy Mountain qualifies both as a fascinating period relic and an enduringly transfixing jaw-dropper.Boston GlobeJanuary 26, 2007
Halfway through we're introduced to nine industrialists and politicians -- they narrate their heinous biographies in Godardian voiceover -- who embark up the title mountain to become immortal. Dude.Lessons of DarknessJune 08, 2011
A rambling stream-of-consciousness quest that - in its final, self-conscious act - celebrates the primacy of the filmed image.Q Network Film DeskMay 16, 2011
starts off with great promise but quickly descends into a kind of monotonous spiral of escalating pretension and wearisome shock tacticsCommercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)February 16, 2011
So loaded with symbols and religious references that the frames of the films flash by as if Jodorowsky were shuffling a deck of his beloved tarot cards...CinePassionFebruary 12, 2010
The Old and New Testament scrambled as a most sustained 'shroom hallucination, one sight at a time out of Alejandro Jodorowsky's bottomless tankDeseret News, Salt Lake CityJuly 13, 2007
Jodorowsky's 1973 surreal fantasy is just too much to dig through.Eye for FilmJuly 09, 2007
a kaleidoscope of vibrant colours, free-floating archetypes and picaresque episodes, all packaged to disorient and confound us with its sheer exuberance, before finally bringing us right back to exactly who we are and what it is that we are seeing.
